AEI to provide fourth B737-400SF conversion to KF Aerospace

Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) has confirmed that it will provide Canada-based KF Aerospace with its fourth B737-400SF freighter conversion.

Work on the aircraft will commence in December this year and will be carried out by KF Aerospace in Hamilton in Ontario, Canada.

The conversion will be the first from AEI to take place at the facility.

AEI said the B737-400SF conversion will provide KF Aerospace with a highly flexible Ancra CLS capable of carrying multiple ULD’s including:

  • (10) 88in x 125in ULDs in P1 to P10 or
  • (8) 96in x 125in in P1 to P10 and
  • (1) 53n x 88in x 64in pallet or AEP/AEH or 60.4in x 61.5in AKE/LD3 or 61.5in x 88in x56in H AYY in P11

“This unique flexibility has been designed by AEI to allow cargo operators to immediately adapt to multiple ULD configurations at a moment’s notice,” a spokesperson at AEI said. “When combined with proven reliability, the AEI Converted B737-400SF will allow KF Aerospace to keep their aircraft in the air, generating revenue”.

AEI first began working with KF Aerospace in 1994. In February 2017, KF Aerospace officially became an authorised AEI Conversion Center and has since accomplished multiple freighter conversions for AEI.

This year, KF Aerospace is celebrating its 50-year anniversary.
